What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was really tough for me, a challenge to an undeveloped area of my brain: spatial relations. I struggled through the A section following Amy's directions and watching the video numerous times. By the time I got to the B sections I developed my own system: I cut out all the B1 pieces and sewed, all the B2 and sewed, etc. That made it much easier for me. I would suggest not trying to match any design/patterns in your fabric, keeping parasols rolling and stripes going the right way added to the complexity for me. Now on to those geese flying in a circle!

Your Red & Whites just knock me out! I often return to gaze at your Modern Dresden. These latest blocks are superb as well. Can't wait to see your final quilt. It should be gorgeous!

This is beautiful. Possibly my favorite of all your red and whites.

Sounds like it was hard work but well worth it. Another beautiful block.
